“Fun experience especially for children”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

Went on this cruise with an eleven year old. Most of the children appeared to be between 4 and 9. I would recommend it for that age only. My son enjoyed it but not as much as the younger children did. It was very warm, 3:30 cruise. Free water and soda refills. The crew was outstanding!

“Fun for the family”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

This is better for the smaller kids. We saw dolphins, the kids hauled up "buried" treasure, swabbed the deck and squirted each other with water pistols. The people were nice. Food and drinks available on board. If you take the dolphin cruise it is some of the same people minus pirate names and costumes. Nice to do in the evening after the kids come out of the water.

“Yo-ho! Great show!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013 via mobile

I wasn't sure what to expect, but it took the cake. Our three year old was fussy for part of the trip, but that didn't stop the crew from still trying to get her involved. The kids, at least most of them, had a blast. That made it fun for us adults as well.

“This is an absolute must for young families!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

My 6 and 3 year old children had an absolute blast on the cruise. The crew was fantastic! The entire 2 hours were full of activities for the kids! Absolutely no down time. This cruise is perfect for families! We loved it! This was the highlight of our trip.

“Thanks so much for a great time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

My son has anxiety issues and stayed in my lap rather than joining all the kids for the fun. Carrie made a point to come and try to get him involved. When he still resisted, she had him be the look out for dolphins, a job he took very seriously. Finally though he could not resist the treasure hunting, musical instruments and dancing. He had a great time. If Carrie had not made a point to come and talk to him personally, I am not sure he would have ever left my side, but she gave him just that little bit of encouragement he needed. I am so grateful she took a minute with him and gave us some wonderful memories to keep forever. Thanks and may God bless you all and keep you safe every time you go to find that treasure. We will be back to see you next time!
